Thank you jim
You take the names and version numbers of the chipsets that you have on your motherboard, the makes and models of your PCI cards, the makes and models of your hard drive, CD, floppy, etc. and Google like mad. Most of the drivers you find will be in source form and you will have to compile them against your kernel source.
I was in your situation a few years ago. I think that you will find that if you get the latest version of a distribution like Fedora that it will include the drivers for your new chipsets as long as the drivers have already been written.
